Purple Trumpet Vine

Clytostoma callistegioides

The Purple Trumpet Vine is a carefree climber that displays a wonderful show of purple, trumpet-shaped flowers that also works amazing on a chain link fence and used as a privacy screen that can block out unsightly views! From Brazil and Argentina, Clytostoma callistegioides features glossy dark green leaves that contrast beautifully with the showy flowers, and the twining stems grow quickly so you will not have to wait too long to enjoy the subtle beauty provided by this evergreen vine. This is a perfect vine for covering up side-yard utilities or for training up porches, garden arbors and trellises!

Homeowners and landscapers alike love that the Purple Trumpet Vine is so easy to maintain. It loves the heat and grows well with full sun to partial shade exposures. We recommend feeding with our Moon Valley Nursery fertilizers and once established, is drought resistant with low to moderate watering needs. It gets extra bonus points for being virtually pest free! It can grow to be a large plant, so it loves to grow in large spaces where it can stretch out and display its beauty for all to see!
